exactly true.

this was very helpful actually.

i wonder though, when i render the final correctly positioned item, to place in photoshop in the correct background, and i select render with transparent background, i always get an image on a white background?

that's all nice nd good for boxshot, but what about adding this feature to origami? would be great to simulate transparent material boxes this way...

same, it's a pain that this option isn't included

hey, vitaly,

here's a file where for the life of me, i am unable to find the gap:

thx Vitaly,

and yes! more analising tools would be very helpful! it takes too long somtimes to determine what is wrong.

i'm also having trouble getting high quality 3D PDF outof origami3,

i have prepared a wetransfer-pack with the files in question, so you can test it

this would allow origami-users to also share templates that they made.

i would love to have this feature, i imagine that you could upload any correct working illustrator- die-cut design in a folder somewhere and point origami to this folder via a path that you can set in the settings and from then on, when using the die-line creator, you can also use all the custom die-cuts that you uploaded there as templates.

Since my initial post, i have learned to workaround this by selecting all cutlines in illustrator and then using the livepaint functionality to close the gaps, as you can set gapdetection to your liking. then all you need to do is expand the freshly filled outline and bob's your uncle!
Of course you need to move all folding lines and any cutout-lines temporarily to another layer, because Livepaint will create one big outline and lose all details on the inside of that outline. but this effectively generates a closed path outline.

Still, it would be more helpful even if Origami would indicate where it detects gaps, the same way it now indicates any overlaps.
